Default headbands with straight ribbon, not wrapped

Hi - is it advisable to cover a headband in 3/8 ribbon by gluing a strip of ribbon flat onto the headband, instead of wrapping the ribbon around...
I like the look of a neat straight ribbon. Has anyone done this? How would I close off the ends of the headband?
and any tips on where to find thin headbands?
Thanks!!!

I make them like this all the time, I even do it with my 5/8 and 7/8 ribbon sometimes, i just wrapped the 2 end with a small piece of coordinating ribbon, they sell like crazy too I get a lot of my headbands from hair pars, I think, it's been so long since I ordered some I can't remember the last place I got them from.

Ohhh, those are cute. I make the woven ones but have never done it like that before.

Do you think it would better to line the inside of the headband also?

i've only had one customer ask me to do the inside as well and it was a pain in the butt, i don't line the underneath but i do put a no slip gripper under there, they seem to hold better, especially since i don't use the headbands with teeth
